Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has denied that he was called up by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) over a probe into alleged misappropriation of funds in the installation of solar energy panels to schools in rural Sarawak.
“Today, I was summoned by MACC to help in an investigation as a witness, but it was not in relation to the solar case,” he tweeted on Thursday (Nov 8).
The vehicle carrying Najib was seen entering the MACC headquarters through the back door at 9.40am. He left the building after fours hours of questioning at 1.55pm.
It was reported that a MACC source said Najib had been asked to assist in investigations into “several” unspecified cases.
Last October, former Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid spent five hours at the MACC headquarters to give his statement on the same case.
Prior to that, on July 9, a former special officer to Najib was remanded for six days to assist the MACC in their investigation into a related case.
